To meet specific Federal LE use requirements the SkyOps for the Sig P229 (model SKY250B) comes standard with an “enhanced retention device” known as a tension unit.
You need to carry a full-sized pistol behind your hip, you don't want to wear a jacket or your shirt tail out, you want stationary holster placement, and you want total concealment.
That's a lot to ask, but one Federal LE agency and many CCW customers asked. Galco delivered, with our SkyOps™ tuckable concealment holster.
The challenge was to design a belt attachment that provides secure carry at the desired angle while remaining inconspicuous. With a J-Hook or C-Hook, the holster can tilt and dive. While a pair of loops on either side or a single, wide loop around the belt can provide stability, they can also advertise "Gun!" to observers across the room. The solution is the patented Galco Y-Hook™, premiered on our SkyOps holster. The Y-Hook grips as securely as a full loop, yet disappears to all but the most trained eye when worn on a black belt.
The SkyOps will not win the competition for easy on-and-off, nor for quick draw and re-holstering. But when it's all about stealth, and wearing a jacket is not an option, the SkyOps sets the standard against which all others are measured. Constructed of premium saddle leather, the SkyOps fits belts of 1" and 1 1/4" width.
Made for semiautomatic pistols, the SkyOps is ambidextrous and available in black finish.
